BACK - EGYPT + DEOLA SAGOE + MADE

Hey Everyone!!!!!!!!
I’m back…..Seriously, seriously, seriously…I have so missed u guys…
I don’t know what I would do without my blog darlings…
Anyways, Egypt was absolutely fantastic….I am soooooo glad that I went.
I think you guys should add it to your list of places to visit.
One of my best moments was horseriding around the pyramids at sunset, soooo beautiful. Its just one of those moments I’ll remember forever.
I had such a fabulous time! Although I was there for work, I took an extra day to do all the touristy things like visit the Pyramids during the day etc…
The country is hard to describe but it reminds me a lot of Nigeria…
My hotel was in New-Cairo which is like in the outskirts of Cairo, very serene, clean and generally gorgeous.
Old-Cairo (where the pyramids are) is just something else….the majority of it looks like a slum, very rowdy, dirty etc…
The people were very warm and genuinely friendly…
I was really impressed with the Egyptian women, very beautiful, intelligent and full of attitude….but in a good way…U can tell that they can’t be pushed around! I was very proud really…
The guys were not bad as well…I can describe some of them as ‘beautiful’ LOL….with some luscious lips and stuvves…LOL…ok let me stop!

So I get back to my house on Saturday expecting to see my internet installed and guess what? I still have no freaking internet as home….arhhh…its so so annoying! I am praying that it gets resolved this week ‘cause I’m about to go ballistic.
Anyways, so what have u guys been up to?
What have I missed?

New Cairo - The view from my room


Pyramids at Sunset + During the Day


Deola Sagoe presented a mini-collection at the Positive+ Show during the Cape Town Fashion Week.


Made Magazine is out with their 2nd edition.

I see they are hitting the African GQ stance harder...
They did a profile interview on the Okunoren Twins - The Young Men who are dominating the menswear game in Nigeria. They are rockin' their own designs in the shoot below.

That's it!
Have a fab day...
Back to work for me :(

Welcome back Bella! Your trip to Egypt sounds amazing, sounds like you had a really great time there. I'll definitely add it to my list of places to visit in the near future. So it's back to work for you girl, hopefully you'll get the chance to have another nice trip soon!
Deola's designs look fab as usual. I can see some wearable pieces. I hadn't heard of the Okunoren twins, but their stuff looks like quality.

Welcome back from Egypt Bella. Sounds like you had fun. I've always wondered how xtian egyptians feel when they read their bibles or when pastors make comments like "you shall never go back to Egypt in Jesus name!"

BeautyinBaltimore said...

I'm glad you had a good time in Egypt Bella. I've heard goog things about Egyptian men from a former classmate.

Mari said...

Lovely pictures of your trip to Egypt. I'm definitely marking that as one of my northern African destinations for 20??.

African version of GQ. Nice. I love men's magazines so I'll be on the look out for this.

Have a good one, Bella.

Ammee said...

They had the picture of the yellow dress and feathers in the Canadian Metro Newspaper and they refered to the designer as South Africa's Deo Sagoe. I thought that maybe there was actually a south african designer with that name...

Idemili said...

Welcome back Bella!!!! I'm selfish, what did you bring for me?

Nwanyi Ocha said...

Top 20 and i don't care what no one says!

Toni Payne said...

welcome back mama, oh gosh! Egypt, you are soooo lucky, what I wouldnt do to get away from it all for one week:( The view from you room was enchanting, I wouldnt have slept, I would have sat there and stared all night long.

truth said...

At last, a slightly personal post.Deola Sagoe's outfits are wearable so I like them.Take care of you.

kaffy said...

Hey,

Egypt sure looks fabulous to me, might try it.

the Twins don't look anywhere alike to me, must be wear being completely and utterly different as twins.

Nice to see that someone has the same problems i do except that my apartment doesn't have a fridge freezer and a cooker due to my misfortune of falling into the hands of a rogue estate agent in the overrated city of London. Not having internet is small when compared to not being able to eat or shop for groceries.
